    I'm a junior in high school right now, I am starting the application process immediately after this year. I will be applying to North Gerogia, The Citadel, Virginia Tech, and The Citadel as a Cadet. I know it's competitive, but do I have a chance of acceptance?

    I have a 3.85 GPA for my career, I'm in the top 20% of my class. I take the ACT Saturday and plan to do well.

    I was recently elected Secretary of my school's National Honor Society, I have lots of community service, and over 85 hours of internship at my local fire department. I also served as a church altar boy in middle school.

    I have a Varsity letter for tennis, along with 2 years of football and 1 year of basketball. I'm a part of my school's Muay Thai club. I also work out regularly and run local trail runs. I also will be getting a part time job this summer.

    Hard to say exactly what your chances would be, but I'd say you have a good chance at being accepted to at least one of the above.

    The only sure way to not be accepted is not to apply. :smile: I'd encourage you to apply to all of those schools, in addition to VMI, and one or more service academies (which can involve applying for nominations from Members of Congress as well), depending on which branch(es) of service you're interested in. I'd also encourage you to apply for an ROTC scholarship at these schools (keeping in mind that N. GA only has Army ROTC), and take the SAT, in addition to the ACT - and take them as often as you can, because the higher your scores, the more opportunities you will have presented to you.

    Good luck!

    with those qualifications you wont have a problem getting accepted at any top academic school, you should be very competetive for an ROTC scholarship as well. Needless to say you will need to be in top physical shape to make it at The Citadel, definitely not a place for couch potatoes.

    Current Citadel Stats for Fall Admission - compare

    The Fall Class at The Citadel is full (800 + accepts for class of about 700), but here are the stats to compare against your GPA and SAT scores - remember these are averages - so half the class is a little above and half is a litle below. Also - links to ROTC scholarships - and I agree with Bob - do apply for 4 year ROTC scholarships to the branch of your choice:

    Definitely apply to Norwich University. Not only is it the birthplace of ROTC but the school also has much better academics then schools like the citadel. The Citadel has had many issues with academics and has suffered in the past but has recovered in the recent years.
